Last fall, Mary and I sat in the Chicago Cultural Center’s StoryCorps booth to interview each other about reasons driving our decision to do what we do. This afternoon, a segment of that interview will air on WBEZ 91.5 FM at 4:44 and 6:20. It will tell the story behind Life Matters Media and the vision that fuels our work.
That work wouldn’t be possible without supporters like you, so we thank you for all that you do. We hope you can tune in.
Next week, I’ll share another important announcement. Exciting things are happening all the time.
If you haven’t been to our website lately, here’s a look at what’s been online:
